    Hi, would anyone be able to help me out with telling the sex of my GLW and SLW chicks please? Sorry not the best photo the gold seems to be getting it's feathers faster but the silver looks to have a longer comb and is more slender. Thanks for any help you can give. [​IMG]

    How their feathering and tail is they both look like females/hens... The rose comb doesn't always mean it's a rooster :) [​IMG]

    How old are they? If they are younger than 16 weeks, then I say roosters.

    They are between 8-10 weeks old (rough guess)

    They both look like roos, very red wide combs. Wyandottes hens should have virtually no comb at that age.

    I'm pretty sure that both are males.

    I was really hoping for females! But with so many rooster answers I'm not so sure now [​IMG] I guess I will wait a few more weeks and see. Thank you [​IMG]

    The rose comb never means it's male or female, it's simply a comb style. But a comb that large and red, at this age, means male. The silver bird is also getting the patchy coloring characteristic of a male. They're both upright and leggy, with thick legs. All those things spell male.
